M2M Spectrum Networks Plans Nationwide Network

M2M Spectrum Networks, a new venture based in Phoenix, Arizona unveiled its plan to build and operate a licensed, all-IP, wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) network throughout the United States. The company will acquire spectrum and facilities from a variety of partners.

M2M Spectrum Networks said it is currently deploying its dedicated, nationwide M2M network in conjunction with network equipment, engineering, site acquisition, and construction partners. It will take a proprietary approach to assembling a nationwide wireless network that is says "substantially lowers costs and dramatically speeds implementation from what was experienced in the slow and expensive nationwide cellular network buildout programs."

The company is planning trials in Q2 2014 and expects to cover 75% of the US population by the end of 2015, and 95% by the end of 2016.
